    If anyone still thinks that CNN is a fair news agency, here's your proof against it.

    CNN, four Israelis were MURDERED by ARAB TERRORISTS. As one poster correctly noted above, if an Israeli had killed a Palestinian, CNN would be the first to jump on the story and decry Israel for its shameful acts against the "suffering and helpless Arabs"

    I see commenters on CNN blast FOX News for being unfair. Well, this is the proof that the opposite is true. CNN reports that 4 Israelis were killed. FOX News reports that 4 Israelis were murdered by Arab terrorists. It doesn't take a genius to realize the biased site.

    Shame on CNN. I hope people will take this into consideration next time CNN is called fair and FOX News is called ridiculous.

      So Elan, is the Israeli army officer in the story linked below a terrorist? He emptied a clip into a 13 year old girl's BACK and was found NOT GUILTY by an Israeli court. And we wonder why some Palestinians would want revenge for things like this. I can't imagine why!

      If I was running the CNN site I would ban most of the idiots posting here. Maybe they could include something in the EULA that states that if the poster hasn't got a GED or finished high school, then they can't post.

      @The Only Able Minded Poster? – Yeah, what a source you bring there, The Guardian! An anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist source cannot be counted as legitimate. Now if you bring a legitimate source with a truthful story and not a made up lie like that one, I would respect you. Until then, I must agree with proisraeli.

      Never mind, proisraeli, I looked at your other comments on this supposed fair "article" and now see that you are the opposite of proisraeli. In that case, you might have a little more success if you had more intelligent posts than "you are dumb".

      Since when is a person considered dumb when they point out the facts.

      Fact – 4 Israelis, including one pregnant woman, were murdered by Palestinian terrorists. Even Al Jazeera admits this (go on their site if you don't believe it).
      Fact – CNN leaves out the fact that the Israelis were murdered by Arabs and just writes that they were "killed". "Killed" can mean anything. To leave out the details exposes a severe bias.
      Fact – FOX News DID write that the Israelis were murdered by terrorists.

      So I point out three facts and somehow I'm dumb. What's your next response going to be? "You're dumb"?

      There will be, and I can tell you the outcome now: "Four Israeli's died while attacking unarmed civilian Palestinians in their homes..." or something like it.

      Support a nation that will use nuclear weapons against European cities if it looks like the end is coming?

      Maybe a lunatic Zio-Christard would, but not me.

    R a t s and vermin, that's all they are. If they want a country, move 150 miles to the west, a perfect spot for the filth that is the Palestinians.

    The Israelis shouldn't have been there in the first place.
    Murder? No, it wasn't.
    I am sick of this country's unwavering support of Israel and hope that one day an administration will have the courage to hold the Israelis accountable for their terrorist actions. We have become too "PC" when it comes to Israel. Do our politicians follow this policy because of the American Jewish vote or because it is the correct policy? I fear it is the former.

      Israel wants peace. All they want is for the Arabs to recognise Israel's right to exist. Only Eygpt has done so and signed a peace treaty with Israel. If they are any other Arab countries willing to recognise Israel there would be tomorrow. Israel has been in a constant state of war and preparation for war since before 1948 when the Arad nations swore to wipe Israel off the map. Invasion/Attack can come at any time.

    • The only able minded poster?

      Joel, that is HIGHLY inaccurate and history proves you are incorrect. Israel wants to be able to annex land whenever they run out of room and take land by force. They break rules they agree to regularly, go back on promises, and use violence every chance they get. Violence begets more violence. Reap what you sow.

    If Palestinians had been killed, this would be the headline article on CNN.

    THE PALESTINIANS DO NOT WANT PEACE.

    • The only able minded poster?

      Wow. You should write a research paper.

      The Palestinian people DO want peace. However, a very, very, very (I'm using small words for you) small group of people in Palestine do not. Much like the idiots posting drivel in the comments section of this thread, they are making their voice heard over the moderate majority. You see, the Palestinian people are dirt poor and many lack any formal education (like you I think), and they have no outlet... no voice in the world. So, instead of understanding that they need our help, morons like you decide to take the "voice" of a violent bunch of radicals and apply that stance to all Palestinians because your brain isn't complex enough to grasp the concept that the minority doesn't speak for the whole.

      I hope that the rest of the world knows that people like you don't speak for the rest of America either.
